  • The 1st and 2nd floor are depictions of animals which are nothing too crazy, but still interesting, but the 3rd floor is crazy good. Every single rock is so beautiful (I took a photo of all of them...

  • This is very beautiful, but I was really looking forward to the audioguides and they were app based and impossible to figure out. Plus, I was there when it was nearly 100F so they had the top floor...

  • Absolutely mind blowing. Had so much taxidermy animals and were all laid out so artfully and intelligently. Some of the display cases were really modern in their execution, almost like little art installations of beautiful birds. Really enjoyed every moment. Will go back in a flash 10/10 and was free which was a touch. Probably don’t go if you’re vegan. Looked like they had a nice cafe and a nice gift shop.
  • What a wonderful/beautiful museum, I can describe it as a small world with mostly all kinds of animals from all over the world, created in a way that gives you life when you look at the animals, it's a great mixture between art and life. I go there every time I get the chance, because you can never get bored. Drawing classes are attended at this museum, and that gives you how much momentum there is. It is very good to be with children, you can easily spend half a day. There is a nice gift shop beside, also there is a coffee shop. No need to buy a ticket, it's free and that's the best thing they did, because you rarely find good places in Switzerland with free entry 😊
